It depends on how the domain owner configures the SPF 'all' option.
Some admins don't want servers to completely reject, but do want them to 
warn to recipient, using the ' ~all ' option, as against those of us that 
want everybody to reject them with the ' -all ' option.

I know I don't want people sending mail as us, so I choose '-all' on all 
of my domains.

The only true way to enforce this is disable it in S.A and to use it at 
the MTA level.
